Safeguarding You From OVI Convictions

Operating a motor vehicle under the influence (OMVI) in Ohio is the equivalent of a DUI in other states, and both acronyms hold the same weight. OMVI is also referred to as OVI or OUI.

For over 35 years, attorney Michael C. Hennenberg has been Cleveland's go-to lawyer for defending anyone facing impaired driving charges.

Penalties For An OVI Conviction

Depending on the circumstances of your case, OMVI sentences can include:

  • Jail time and fines
  • Special plates
  • License suspension and revocation
  • Installation of an ignition interlock device

However, the consequences of a conviction can extend beyond criminal penalties if you are a licensed professional.

What Are Defenses To OVI Charges?

We aggressively fight for reduced sentence or acquittals for our clients. One of the ways we can do this is by suppressing evidence. OVI stops can be riddled with mistakes and compromise the evidence that will be used against you. Common mistakes made during OVI stops include, but are not limited to:

  • Improper administration or malfunction of a Breathalyzer
  • Miranda rights violations
  • Lack of reasonable suspicion to initiate a traffic stop

At an initial consultation, we will evaluate your case to determine the admissibility of the prosecution's evidence and craft a steelproof defense.
